Although the mornings and evenings are still balmy, and days can be terrifyingly hot, the first signs of Autumn begin to appear. We still need cooking dishes and drinks. Fruit gradually changes away from stone fruits as Autumn fruits begin to appear later in the month. During Late Summer, food gains more body, as if the physical body wants to stock up for the approach of cold weather.
Enjoy some special Tempting Sweets and Cooling Drinks Inspiration for Late Summer. You can also browse S0up Recipes for Late Summer; Salad, Vegetable and BBQ Recipes; Indian Deliciousness; Goodies, Grains, Lentils and More; Cooling Drinks and Sweet Things; and Tips and Hints for Cooking in Late Summer.
